U2's "360" tour has become the highest grossing tour in history.
In Sao Paulo, "360" will pass the $558 million gross mark set by The Rolling Stones for their "A Bigger Bang" tour of 2005-2007, reports Billboard. U2 will go on to shatter the record at about $700 million by the time it wraps in North America on July 30th at Magnetic Hill in Moncton, N.B. The tour returns to North America May 21st in Denver. Yeah, that's my birthday!
"360" will also have moved more than seven million tickets to 110 shows, enough to capture the "highest attended tour ever" accolade as well. The Stones held that title, as their "Voodoo Lounge" tour of 1994-1995 had held the attendance record at 6.4 million tickets, according to Boxscore.
